Condition Report

It has not been possible to examine the work out of its frame. The canvas is not lined. Examination under UV light reveals no evidence of retouching. There are a few faint stains in places, notably towards the centre of the left edge. There is a spot of varnish which appears to have yellowed to the model’s proper right shoulder. There are a few thin lines of stable craquelure in places. There is some frame abrasion associated with a few spots of golden residue along the extreme edges. This work is in overall very good condition and could benefit from a clean.
